It’s About Me… (or you!)

IMG_6765Over the past few months, I have spent enormous amounts of time on myself, with myself, for myself! Actually, most of  last year. With meditations, evaluations, creations, classes, immersion study, questing, movement, reading, writing, downsizing, shifting, changing, staying in place!  My shifting into an older age, a changing vision of my dance and my work world and my play world. They are all one. But a shift was needed.

How do you shift? Time is an important factor. Being present is the most important though. Listening, watching, stopping, going, all of the above. Retreat. Go in. Move forward. Stay in place. I know I have made my Gypsy Caravan Dance Company dancers and Master Teachers a little crazy because I would say one thing, and then later shift again to something the total opposite! But you know what? I can. I have allowed myself all possibilities. To dream. To envision. I have allowed myself time to feel, to acknowledge, to search and try out different pictures, to create for myself and for you!

Time for oneself is necessary. Self- love, self-care. Lots of those words running around these days. Trendy. For a reason. Because we have forgotten how to take care of ourselves. Forgotten, or been told that we are selfish if we do something for ourself first.  But I know if mama’s not happy, ain’t nobody happy!

Truth.

To redefine, to dive in, to find new skills of self care, new ways to work, new ideas to explore, and explode, and more time for myself. To retreat in, to say no, to say yes, to ask for what I desire. The heart bursts open, the soul lights up, the body reacts, the brain ignites, the momentum comes, and the energy exuberates ( that is not proper English but I like it!). New ways to work, to see, to play, new people to play with and create with, old ways to keep or shift… so freakin’ good, people.

Everyone, you, need to do this for yourself. To retreat. To spend time alone and to spend time with people who matter, with people who light you up, with folks you can learn from, with like-minded peeps from all walks of life who will share in your glory too. To give yourself that gift of time, of peace, of exploration, of momentum.

I’m not talking about sitting on the couch eating bonbons…

I’m talking about truly diving in to find out what makes you you. Of running that extra mile. Of getting up a little earlier to set yourself up for victory. Of finding what you truly desire in this amazing life we have here. Of what you need to get to that place you keep dreaming of. I get pretty dang passionate about this people! And I want to support you. Not the what if’s, or the maybe next year shit...

but the now is my time kind of time.

Of moving your body because you have to.

Of feeding yourself great food to feel great.

Of writing your wish list and make it your ACTION list, now…

And you need time and space to do that…

Do this for yourself. And I can help you with that…
